Admissions to Nashville nursing home suspended

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner has suspended new admissions to a nursing home in Nashville.

A statement from the state Health Department says Donelson Place Care and Rehabilitation Center was ordered on June 4 to stop taking new admissions based on conditions at the facility during a complaint visitation and a following visit on May 19. The statement sent Wednesday says the order will remain effective until problems have been corrected.

According to the statement, surveyors found violations of standards that include administration, nursing services, social work services and resident rights.

Dreyzehner also imposed a monetary penalty of $3,001.

Donelson Place has the right to request a hearing over the matter.

I am always glad when a facility gets the kitchen sink thrown at them, because it means somebody's watching at least. It takes alot to get action, but at least there is action from time to time.
